          Hello Everyone,
          I am interested in hospice and palliative training. My residency is from a community program and i could not do a hospice/palliative rotation during my residency. I could not do an away elective as well. My profile is as follows - IMG needing visa/community program/3rd yr cat. IM/No posters/1 yr critical care research-post doc
          Now, I did apply for Heme-Onc which is my interest but i am not sure if ill get any ivs. so i want to work out this as a backup plan.
          My question is -
          1) I do not have any LoRs from hospice palliative rotation - Can I use the ones from Heme onc?
          2)How useful is this training if i want to apply for heme onc next year
          3)What are the prospects if i want to continue working in hospice and palliative care specialty post fellowship, in terms of worklife balance/compensation and opportunities for a j1 waiver job?
          4) How competitive is getting into fellowship in HPM? I say that because i havent done a rotation in HPM during residency and my med school is not from USA

          I would be glad if you can answer my questions.
          Thanks and good luck to all.

            Thanks! Anything unexpected on the interview trail? All the people I know in HPM are pretty laid back, but it's a small sample size so far...

                    Just out of curiosity, is anyone else here applying pediatric track? Was curious because had gotten emails on interest from DC Children's and Cincinnati but no official interview invites so trying to figure out if interviews are done or if some programs are still running behind.

                      Nah, I cant remember any out of place questions. It's a small community you'll be joining and I think every where is pretty mindful of that. My advice would be to go and enjoy the day!

                        Hey all!

                        From what I can tell the number of applicants has gone up this year. How many interviews are you planning on going on? I am debating about ten. Is that excessive?
                        Those who have heard from Harvard, was it the adult program or paediatrics? I am still waiting to hear from the adult program.

                          I overapplied and went on too many interviews. I visited 11 programs, in hindsight 7 would have been a good selection. It was difficult for me because I had zero idea where I wanted to be so had no geographic barriers.

                          I think it has been getting more competitive, but there are so many excellent programs across the country. Apply to places because you'd really like to go there/know the city...not because it's a reach/obtainable program/safety.

                            Does anyone know how old the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center program is? I can't find it on the website.
                            Currently in its first year, expanding this coming year to two fellows and then growing to four down the road. The fellowship plan has been in the works for 7 years or so I believe--a lot of legwork to get there!
